Missouri River Creeps towards Downtown Parkville

The flooding Missouri River has now entered the Kansas City area, inching towards Parkville's downtown.  Police officer Randy Stone says he's been moving the barracades every hour as the water heads towards the dikes built two weeks ago by volunteers.
  The water crossed the small creek bridge early in the morning and by midday was halfway to the railroad tracks separating Parkville's park area from downtown businesses.

This is the last of the public's sightseeing from the large parking area as water is about to inundate parts of the Parkville Farmers Market grounds.
